Too many times I love the premise of this book I love the first 4 books tho they are also uite detailed and redundant to a lesser extreme This book just annoyed me greatly Yet I still like it in a way because it sets up the conclusion of her series I still want to know what happens to my favorite prehistoric family Auel leaves you wanting to know Ayla and Jondalar's future and that's even with an obnoxiously boring book I look forward to book 6 and I will remain optimistic that she can give us another page turner
